The Plum Yak just got two louder and one shade darker. That is, you can crank the release value up to 14 instead of 12 on the original, and it’s now black. The rest remains the same, meaning is the lightest binding for fast skiing on fat skis. The Yak 14 binding has an extra-wide mounting pattern to help with power transfer and reduce the chance of pullout on wide skis. It also has a support pad in front of the heel pins to accommodate your weight after a big drop if your skis are at least 95mm wide underfoot and you are at least a 7 on DIN charts, you qualify to ride the might Yak. The only choice is whether you want brakes. A slick sliding mechanism locks the brake arms up when skinning, and a simple push of a button releases them to go skiing. The Plum Yak is the binding for powder aficionados who want to ski many laps in the backcountry on mini-snowboards.

  • Mounting pattern is widened versus the Guide to add stability and power transfer.
  • Lateral and vertical release values are fully adjustable from 7-14 on the tech scale.
  • Built-in landing pads in front of the heel pins reduce stress on those big landings.
  • Flat mode and an additional two riser positions can be activated with a ski pole.
  • Optional brakes are available in 110mm and 130mm widths and lock while skinning.
  • Bomber toes and heels are made of aerospace-grade aluminum for everyday-strength.
  • Integrated crampon receptors in the toe pieces accept Plum crampons from the top.
  • 30mm of adjustment range in the heels means you can have a nice boot quiver.
  • Full 9mm thick toe support plate means a natural stance with a lower ramp angle.
  • Made in France, with love, by French people and/or immigrants.

Update 2018/19: The Yak got more in stock; Plum upped production levels to provide for you.

What is the distance (width) between centre of mounting holes for both toe and heel on the yak 14? Most websites state a 50 mm mounting hole width, but a page on skimo listed a 50 mm width for toe and 55 mm width for heel. Thanks
Answer from I-M
Tim, verified the mounting hole pattern.

Toe:50 x 50
Heel:55 x 58
